The high prevalence of psychostimulant abuse observed in schizophrenic patients may be related to the development of mesolimbic dopaminergic supersensitivity (MDS) or nigrostriatal dopaminergic supersensitivity (NDS) in response to the chronic blockade of dopamine receptors produced by typical neuroleptic treatment. We compared the effects of withdrawal(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previous studies have provided no clear conclusions regarding the effects of delaying radiotherapy (RT) in GBM patients. We present a systematic review and meta-analysis to address the effect of delayed RT on the overall survival (OS) of GBM patients. METHODS A systematic search retrieved 19 retrospective studies published between(More)
OBJECTIVE Small cell carcinoma of the ovary-hypercalcemic type (SCCOHT) is a rare disease with a poor prognosis. SCCOHT has recently been shown to be associated with SMARCA4 gene mutations as well as molecular and genetic similarities to malignant rhabdoid tumors (MRT). The objective of our study is to describe the clinical characteristics, treatment(More)
Lepromatous leprosy is a model of immune evasion wherein pathogen-specific IL-10-secreting T cells and concomitant failure of Th-1 immunity permit uncontrolled proliferation of the intracellular pathogen, Mycobacterium leprae (M. leprae). The mechanism of this immune escape is unknown. Here, the authors report that phenolic glycolipid-1 (PGL-1), a major and(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to describe the epidemiological and survival features of patients with glioblastoma multiforme treated in 2 health care scenarios--public and private--in Brazil. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed clinical, treatment, and outcome characteristics of glioblastoma multiforme patients from 2003 to 2011 at 2 institutions.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of waiting time (WT) to radiotherapy (RT) on overall survival (OS) of glioblastoma (GBM) patients as a reliable prognostic variable in Brazil, a scenario of medical disparities. METHOD Retrospective study of 115 GBM patients from two different health-care institutions (one public and one private) in Brazil who underwent(More)
•Small cell carcinoma of the ovary is a rare and aggressive malignant tumor.•No effective treatment for recurrent disease has yet been described.•Patients with recurrent disease may respond to salvage surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or a combination of these modalities.
INTRODUCTION Recurrent cervical cancer is associated with a poor prognosis. Most treatment responses are partial and of short duration. The development of new therapies is vital to improve treatment for recurrent disease. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors may have a role in this setting.
